    Hi, all.
    Enjoying all the great information here on the site. We bought a 2017 JKU New Year's Eve, and are looking to find a good backup camera. I would prefer not to buy super cheap, so ideas on quality backup camera setups would be great.
    Future plans are for a 2.5 inch lift and a nice matching wheel and tire combo, but that's a little ways off.
    Thanks in advance.
    Paul

    Did it come with the Alpine 430n radio? If so I had one installed at the dealership before I bought it (wasn't cheap) that I would sell you cheap that I'm not going to use anymore as I installed a different Alpine in my 2016 and am going to use a different camera. If not check out Crutchfield they have a bunch to choose from. When I take the one out I have this weekend I'll let you know the brand and model number to see if your interested.

    My Wife got me a kit from Sierra Expeditions. It was a little more than some, but was a DIY Installation, and came with the programmer to unlock the OEM system allowing the camera to be recognized. I'll find out what it is, but I believe its called a "Brand Motion" or something like that.

    The Jeep doesn't have the fancy big screen display, so I probably can't go the route you mentioned. Will need to come up with something that maybe has it's own screen, or runs through the cell phones (if possible). Thanks for the suggestions!

    There are lots the have the display in the rearview mirror. You get the mirror, camera, and such, as a complete kit.
